    “It’s not a problem anymore,” Nadal said. “I don’t have pain anymore in the shoulder. But during the Hamburg tournament I couldn’t serve very well. I was just trying to put serves in, very slow speed. But happy the way I served today. I think I was serving very well tonight.”

    “I do what I feel is better for my tennis,” he said about his training and practice routines. “Normally before tournaments I practice two hours. Here I arrived on Thursday, so I practiced Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday – three hours every day. So more than usual.

    “Playing doubles here helps to get more adapted to the hard court, with returns, with fast movements. That’s why I am playing doubles.”

    The match against Kei will be very important for Rafa and the outcome will determine if he has come back enough to overcome a great player .I look forward to a competitive and exciting match . If Rada serves well , he can best Kei .
